  • At BetMGM, the spread, moneyline and total have been superseded by one game prop that's made waves in recent days on social media.
  • The game to finish Eagles 37, Chiefs 34 is now the most popular bet overall at BetMGM after a conspiratorial tweet indicated that would be the final score for Super Bowl LVII.

A post that portends to know of the "script" for Super Bowl LVII between the Chiefs and Eagles has had a real impact on the betting markets.

On Saturday, a Twitter account by the name of FearKyrie tweeted "Nah someone just leaked the Super Bowl script." The graphic looked like a Football Reference page with the Eagles prevailing 37-34.

DraftKings spokesman Stephen Miraglia told the Action Network that 37-34 Eagles is the most popular correct score bet so far, making up 21% of the total bets of the correct score market and 26% of the money.

And at BetMGM, that prop has become the most popular betoverall at a price of +8000. That's more popular than the spread, moneyline or total

There are five times the number of bets on that correct score than any other.

That line has been steamed down from its opening price of +25000 to its current price of +8000.

The favorites at MGM above Eagles 37, Chiefs 34 are:

  • Chiefs 27, Eagles 24 (+5000)
  • Eagles 27, Chiefs 24 (+5000)
  • Chiefs 20, Eagles 17 (+6600)

The tweet was viewed more than 12 million times before the account was suspended.

True or false website-of-record Snopes even weighed in with a post pointing out that it was a joke.

This isn't the first time a viral tweet has affected the correct score market. It happened last year thanks to a photoshopped image from The Simpsons, which claimed that the Cincinnati Bengals were going to beat the Los Angeles Rams, 34-31. The Rams went on to win 23-20.

Super Bowl teams have scored 37 points once (Washington, XXVI) and 34 points four times (Denver [XXXIII], Baltimore [XXXV], Baltimore [XLVII], Patriots [LI]).

If the game ended 37-34, that would be a total of 71. Only two Super Bowls have beaten that total — Super Bowl XXIX (75) and Super Bowl LII (74).
